J/ApJ/661/1119      Spectroscopy in the 25 Ori group    (Briceno+, 2007)

25 Orionis: a kinematically distinct 10 Myr old group in Orion OB1a. Briceno C., Hartmann L., Hernandez J., Calvet N., Vivas A.K., Furesz G., Szentgyorgyi A. <Astrophys. J., 661, 1119-1128 (2007)> =2007ApJ...661.1119B

We refer to this stellar aggregate as the 25 Orionis group. The group also harbors the Herbig Ae/Be star V346 Ori and a dozen other early-type stars with photometry, parallaxes, and some with IR excess emission, indicative of group membership. Description: We obtained low-resolution optical spectra of our candidate PMS stars with a variety of telescopes and instruments. The brighter stars (V~>16) were observed at the 1.5m telescope of the Whipple Observatory equipped with the FAST Spectrograph. For the fainter (V~<16) candidates in our photometric survey the bulk of the spectroscopic follow-up was done with the Hectospec multifiber spectrograph on the 6.5m MMT telescope at Mount Hopkins.

Note (1): Continuing the numbering sequence from Briceno et al. (2005, Cat. J/AJ/129/907); stars from that article have CVSO numbers ≤197. The newly identified young members of 25 Ori and Orion OB1b presented here start with object CVSO-198. Note (2): Measurements from low-resolution spectra (FAST, Hydra, Hectospec). Note (3): Measurements from the high-resolution Hectochelle spectra. Note (4): A measurement of the ratio of the peak of the cross-correlation to the estimated noise, and is therefore an indicator of the accuracy of the results (Tonry & Davis, 1979AJ.....84.1511T). Note (5): The classification is based on spectral dependent threshold W(Hα) following White & Basri (2003ApJ...582.1109W). Stars CVSO-200, 238 and 246 have no low-resolution spectra available yet. They were classified as T Tauri stars from the Hectochelle spectra based on the following criteria: having the appropriate magnitudes and colors, radial velocity within 1-σ of the peak of the velocity distribution for their location, peculiar Hα emission, either a blue-shifted absorption component to Hα or this line very strongly in emission (the later is the case for CVSO-238).
